Goodhue Water Tower

Goodhue, MN | Public Works

Overview

ISG produced a feasibility study that led to the design and construction of the City of Goodhue’s new water tower.


Opportunity

The City of Goodhue wanted to explore options for a new water tower that allowed for the old tower to remain in place until the completion of the new structure.

Solution

In April 2010, a Feasibility Study was conducted for a new elevated storage tank to serve the City of Goodhue’s municipal water distribution system. This report included evaluation of the City’s current water distribution system, tower sizing, tower construction, existing tower demolition, subsurface soil conditions, permitting requirements, funding options, tower lease options, project schedule, and cost estimates. This study also included creating and calibrating a model of the entire City’s existing water distribution system. This model was then used to determine the effects of the new water tower and additional watermain improvements on the existing system. The model was generated in WaterCAD V8i.

The final construction plans and specifications for a 250,000-gallon water tower were completed. The project includes water tower construction along with watermain extension to existing infrastructure, site plans, and demolition of the existing tower. The planning was done so that the old tower could remain in place until the new one was complete. Scope of work for this project included all necessary construction plans, specifications, bidding and contract documents, bid solicitation and construction administration, as well as responsibility for permitting, coordination of geotechnical engineering, and coordination with utility companies and inspection services.
